Very nice hotel in all respects Clean well appointed rooms Excellent choice of breakfast buffet Great staff and very good location close to the airport Ideal if you are going to the north side of Hamburg

I have been staying in this hotel beacuse of work for about 15 years now. It used to be The Queens Hotel, then a Best Western and now a Leonardo Hotel (maybe I missed something in between!). When it changed to Leonardo there was a brief moment of tidying up and, what I guess was, staff bolstering, in the sense of "be more positive and the guests will like it". It seemed to work for a very short while. My latest visit, (now) on first glance seemed an improvement on my previous one. I had written an e-mail and I had received a charming reply agreeing to my request of a quiet room, on a high floor, away from the lift - local knowledge!! When I arrived, the receptionist was polite and efficient, my room appeared at first glance to be welcoming. I had a complimentary little plate of mixed fruit, biscuits and chocolates. On reflection, I am not sure if that was for St Niklaus (two days ago), the Immaculate Conception (yesterday), or, because I am a privelidged Leonardo Club Member. The bathroom was no better than last year and but distinctly worse than 15 years ago. Old toilets just look dirty whatever you try to do to them. Breakfast, I think was probably the same, I am not a communal breakfast person but I did look into the breakfast room. However, I must say, I had a good clean kettle in my room and could enjoy a cuppa whenever I so desired. OK, here we go. I went to the bar after work and had a beer. OK. Nothing to complain about apart from the fact that I was served by a "pleasant enough" young lady who was still finishing her last mouthful of something or other. I ordered a "Großer Leonardo Salad" with an extra of "Goats Cheese". In addition, I ordered a bottle of white italian wine (I am staying for three days so I thought I could save the rest for the other nights). Well, the salad was really disappointing. It was just a handful of various lettuce leaves and two cherry tomatoes cut in half. There were no red peppers as stated on the menu and no balsamico vinaigrette. Roasted seeds? No way, there were seeds, yes, but had they been roasted? No way! Now I know that for some people a salad is uninteresting but for many, a good salad is exciting and full of flavour, and whats more, a full meal. I am sure that I would have had a better meal if I had crossed the road and foraged in the Stadtpark only a couple of minutes away. DId I complain? No. Why? Because I want an easy life, tomorrow I will go elsewhere to eat like I did yesterday. As for the wine? Shown at the table, opened behind the bar and the cork shoved in to an already open red wine bottle behind the bar. Would I come back to this hotel? Well my company books this hotel and so I am pretty much stuck with that decision. Honestly, if it was that bad I would refuse to come here, I can cope with it but there is another hotel very close by of similar rating that I would prefer given the choice. NM.

Arrival in evening traffic fine, so as parking. Room clean and fine, beds are ok. There is a fridge that used be a minibar and a el. water pot for coffee/tea. Bathroom ok. Pipe noise from neighbor rooms might be a disturbance.

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The rooms are extremely tiny. My wife arrived a day early and mentioned that I am tall, so they switched her room so that I could actually fit in the bathroom (seriously the guest height makes a difference). But, with that being said, if you are traveling alone, then the rooms are fine. They have also recently renovated them so they are very nice, sleek, and give you a true European feel. With that being said, there is no central air or circulation, which can be a problem if the air is stuffy or it is raining so can't open the windows as much (and it rains a lot). The breakfast is also excellent. Most of the staff are pretty friendly and speak multiple languages. The location is close to the beautiful Stadtpark and also many businesses for meetings.

Clean, local to everything breakfast was better this time around Staff excellent dfinately worth visiting for business or pleasure Allows dogs which was good to see. Quiet hotel good sized rooms Will be booking again, this was number 8 times of booking

Great hotel with a beautiful park as it’s back garden great links to the airport and city centre as it’s 5 minutes walk from the s bahn (metro) the rooms are a good size and have comfy beds the staff are polite and helpful would stay here again and recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in Hamburg.

This hotel got stuck in the 70’s i guess. There are only 2 lifts for visitors and one of them didn’t work almost the whole week we were there. But they look like they are slightly renovating the place. new paint on the staircases and walls. Overall good hotel, fine beds, clean rooms, friendly staff, ok breakfast with a lot of choice. The coffee is drinkable not great but ok. My room looked out on the gas stations parking lot.. maybe not the best but who cares :) on the room they give you soap, towels, things to brush your shoes, a bottle of spakling water and a water heater.

We stayed at the Leonardo Hotel for one night, at the beginning of a road trip. The hotel is conveniently located a few minutes away from the airport (by car). There is parking either at the hotel itself or on the streets nearby. The staff is friendly and the decor is pleasant. The room was more than adequate: very clean, well furnished, well lit; the beds were comfortable and the down covers and pillows very nice. We had a very good night's sleep. The bathroom was very clean also. All in all, a very good hotel if you have to spend a night upon arriving at Hamburg airport (or before getting on a plane).

It is average hotel to stay, small rooms. Breakfast menu is not so great, it is ok. It is far from city, so for commute you have to use car, or other conveince Staff of this hotel are cooperative, they are always available to listen you, that is good part.

Lovely clean hotel. Staff were very good and helpful. The rooms were small but not too small and very clean. Not much around there but public transport was good. Nice little bar just minutes away for those of you like live music and a nice bistro just around the corner. The front entrance however was not wheelchair friendly. The breakfast was a buffet with plenty of choice and very good. Would definitely stay here again.
